GSS authentication failure - A question to the gt-users mailing list

I posted today the following question:

I installed Globus version gt4.0.4-x86_64_rhas_4-installer on an Opteron node running CentOS 4.4.
output of uname -a is:
2.6.9-55.0.2.ELsmp #1 SMP Tue Jun 26 14:14:47 EDT 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

In the globus-gatekeeper.log there is the following error message:

TIME: Thu Oct 25 18:16:50 2007
PID: 14589 -- Notice: 6: globus-gatekeeper pid=14589 starting at Thu Oct 25 18:16:50 2007

TIME: Thu Oct 25 18:16:50 2007
PID: 14589 -- Notice: 6: Got connection xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx at Thu Oct 25 18:16:50 2007

GSS authentication failure
GSS Major Status: General failure
GSS Minor Status Error Chain:
globus_gsi_gssapi: Error during delegation: Delegation protocol violation
Failure: GSS failed Major:000d0000 Minor:00000002 Token:00000000

PID: 14589 -- Failure: GSS failed Major:000d0000 Minor:00000002 Token:00000000

I would appreciate any help resolving this problem

Regards,

Guy Tel-Zur

Then, I received the following reply from Charles Bacon:

That's the sign of a client who disconnected because it didn't trust the gatekeeper. From the gatekeeper's point of view, the disconnect of the client is a violation of protocol. It doesn't indicate anything wrong with your gatekeeper.
